Valerian Root Essential Oil

This herb is considered Water of Water in terms of Elemental magick, but to me its scent is Earth. This typically rooty, earth-like fragrance is calming and sedating. Many consider this a Jupiter aroma, and it is indeed named for a war-loving Roman emperor (who ended up being skinned by the king of Syria). Some say this a good substitution for spikenard, which smells musky only at first. Steam-distilled from Valeriana officinalis in China.

Combining With Other Essential Oils

Many people do not like the musky scent of this oil, but a little can add much depth to a magickal oil, especially those that evoke the forest. The fragrance of valerian blends well with cedarwood, lavender, mandarin, patchouli, petitgrain, pine, and rosemary. Top
